For 2020 the YZF-R1 features a radical new race-bred look together with a highly refined engine and uprated chassis that confirm its position as the ultimate Yamaha supersport. With its radical new MotoGP styling and now equipped with a total of seven electronic rider controls, the 2020 YZF-R1 is more than ready for the third decade of the 21st century.
Pure M1 DNA is evident in the aggressively styled front cowl and racing screen, and the new fairing’s sides flow seamlessly into the fuel tank assembly to give a clean and fully integrated look that is enhanced by the use of colour matched lower tank panels.
As well as giving the 2020 model a more dynamic style together with a high quality feel, this new bodywork enables riders to reinforce the feeling of unity with their machine. Aerodynamic efficiency is increased by over 5%, giving significant performance gains at high speeds. Equipped with an aggressive new M1-derived cowl, the more aerodynamic bodywork delivers ultimate performance. Next generation LED headlights and restyled LED position lights reinforce this bike's intimidating presence – and with the new Brake Control (BC) and Engine Brake Management (EBM) systems, you're in full control.
Each of the seven adjustable electronic rider aids can be fine-tuned in seconds via the YRC system. And with uprated suspension, a highly refined EU5 engine and premium RS11 tyres, the YZF-R1 has just raised the bar to a new level.
The YZF-R1M is the definitive Yamaha supersport motorcycle that has established a hard-won reputation as one of the most sophisticated and capable race bikes – as well as being regarded as the ultimate machine for passionate riders.
Besides featuring all the new elements that are found on the YZF-R1, the 2020 YZF-R1M model benefits from the addition of the latest Öhlins ERS NPX gas pressurised forks. These new Öhlins ERS NPX gas pressurised forks contribute significantly towards achieving a more consistent damping force for increased levels of chassis control together with higher handling agility and reduced lap times.
